Host a Valentines Day Card Party for Kids!
What better way to celebrate the holiday of love than by hosting a fun Valentines Day card party for all the little loved ones in your neighborhood? This sweet party theme encapsulates everything that's charming about Valentines Day cards, from making your own Valentines Day cards to hand delivering Valentines Day cards to your friends and family. It's the perfect way to entertain a crowd if you are babysitting for your neighbors, or even just to have a fun afternoon teaching your own children about love, kindness and letter writing.
One fun activity you can plan during your Valentines Day card party is to have the kids either make their own Valentines Day cards or decorate Valentines Day cards you've already purchased with glitter, sequins, rhinestones and markers. They can make a Valentines Day card for their parents, grandparents and siblings, or for each guest at the party.
You can also make a fun day out of decorating cupcakes and sugar cookies with candy hearts, bright sprinkles and lots of gooey frosting. Anything sweet makes an ideal accompaniment to a celebration of love! Or, if you'd like to steer the kids away from the sugar, plan crafts involving fresh flowers. Make arrangements or weave flower garlands to decorate their hair.
Another fun craft you can plan during your Valentines Day card party is to make use of all of the leftover Valentines Day cards you have lying around. Have the kids turn them into ornaments, origami, placemats or coasters. You can even cut them up to make Valentines Day card paper dolls!
However you decide to celebrate Valentines Day with the kids, make sure you show them that love and kindness rule the day!
